By Grace O

The right foods, herbs and spices can help us detox, lose weight, improve our skin and live longer, more vital lives. But how do you know which foods to choose?  One of the things I set out to do in my cookbooks is to make it easy to see what each recipe (and its ingredients) can do for you.  We started out with five symbols (icons) for the benefits in my first cookbook, The Age GRACEfully Cookbook, but I expanded it to eight icons in my new book, The Age Beautifully Cookbook.

Here’s what each icon means: AO is for antioxidant, AI is for anti-inflammatory, IB is for immunity booster, DP is for disease prevention, M is for mind (mood and mental agility), B is for beauty (great skin, hair and healthy eyes), S is for strength (bones, muscles & joints), and WL is for weight loss (metabolism and digestion).
